Join us on Sunday 6th September 2020 as Team Wessex walkers in Hampshire, Dorset and the Isle of Wight Walk for Hope Your Way!

Choose your distance from our 5, 10 or 20 mile challenges and enjoy walking your chosen route whether that be along the coast, winding through woodland or trekking across fields! You can complete your walk with friends or family, at your own pace and in your own local area.

Even though we won’t be together physically this year, this is the perfect way to come together as a community and give hope to friends and family undergoing cancer treatment, celebrate those who have survived, remember loved ones and support everyone affected by cancer.

This year we have created a website just for Walk for Hope - Your Way!

You can register at https://www.walkforhope.co.uk/online and set up your fundraising page. You can also link your Strava or FitBit account to track your miles. There’s a fundraising leaderboard to help you monitor your progress and compete with friends and family.

Registration - £10 per person

Fundraising goal - £100 per person

Entrants receive an official Walk for Hope t-shirt, a fundraising pack, a training and event guide, and membership to a Facebook group where you can meet other participants and share fundraising and training tips.
